Maybe you could tell me if you have them on your list. I experienced the same with the Dutch edition. Apparently, in the Dutch version, 35 books of the English list were replaced by books by Dutch and Flemish authors.
I suppose every translation of the list gets its national "twist", but it does surprise me that the French version includes non-French authors in the national edition. Interesting, are they replacing books that aren't available in French, or does the person who compiled the French version have their own preferences?

Microscope is charged by Caprice with buying the princess and, visiting Quipasseparla "Who Goes There", king of the stock-market , he negotiates with him just in case the 'stock-price' goes up.
